GreenFields’ new synthetic turf performs more like grass and could reduce leg injuries

GreenFields, the world leader in synthetic field systems, continues to lead the market in product innovation by introducing a safer synthetic playing surface called GreenFields® MX 3 STAR.    GreenFields President Guido Vliegen states, “GreenFields MX 3 STAR feels like real turf and our laboratory testing strongly suggests that it will have a significant impact on decreasing the number of lower leg injuries that players experience on synthetic turf.”

Focus on Sports Safety 

It is well known that synthetic turf fields typically provide players higher traction than natural grass.  However, NFL statistics show that lower leg injuries are more prevalent on synthetic turf than on natural grass. GreenFields addresses this problem since it has physical characteristics that are closer to natural grass than any other synthetic turf product. Richard Kent, Professor at the University of Virginia Center for Applied Biomechanics, has conducted independent testing of the new GreenFields MX product and stated, “Greenfields MX 3 STAR performed much like a natural grass field.”

Construction Update at Bates University

 

When Campus Construction Update learned that a new watering system was part of this summer’s project to replace the playing surface on Bates’ field hockey facility, our journalistic reflexes started to bark.
Why, they asked, would you irrigate artificial grass?

Well, as it turns out, it’s standard in field hockey to soak the artificial turf for games and practices (in above-freezing temperatures, anyway). The reasons involve both the quality of play and the safety of the players, explains Bates’ field hockey coach Danielle Ryder.

“The water allows the ball to move at greater speeds with a consistent roll,” she says. “It also keeps the ball on the very top layer of the turf carpet, allowing players to easily maneuver their sticks around the ball.”
